Audience Reviews for I'm Bout It

This movie was marketed extremely well. When it was released in '97, during the middle of Master P's fame and success anything and everything with his name on it was selling off the shelves. That's why it's no wonder this underground urban drama sold over 250,000 copies and still goin'. If you are a fan of No Limit back then or even now check it out. It has a few old school phatty videos and don't get me started with the freaky deaky strippers at the bonus Ice Cream Party. So what I got to say to all the people who don't like Master P or No Limit Records don't watch it because it isn't for you and don't bother voting on it because you're only going to deter TRU no limit fans from renting or purchasing this video with your low votes. It gives me great joy to have acquired this movie. This is one of the best movies I own, and I hope the guy I borrowed it from does not come over and remember I still have his tape! But don't get me wrong, this could be the worst acting I've seen to date and the plot was...well...HORRID, but that is the beauty of it. To enjoy this movie it must be viewed solely for it's unintentional humor. It's so bad you will literally be entertained looking for those shining moments, my personal favorites are any scenes with Silk the shocker's attempts at acting. I recommend watching this with a friend, so the laughter came be shared and ya'll can team up to crack on noteworthy scenes. I haven't seen all of Master P's movies, but I highly recommend his "Last Don" movie if you enjoy "I'm Bout it" like I do. Sure the audio and the special effects are not there, but this movie is as raw as it gets. The characters are a bit extreme and the acting is not good, but this is a movie for gangstas from the streets. After watching a movie like this, I just want to go out and pull a caper or hit the 'crilla'. The themes are very intense and if you're going to watch this movie, be ready to see what life in the streets are like. Life in New Orleans ain't no joke and this movie will show that. I definitely enjoyed watching the music videos that accompanied the movie. The soundtrack that was associated with the movie was very fitting too. Watch it at your own risk.
